Applications for Summer 2018 undergraduate internships with the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) are now being accepted. Learn more and apply at https://www.scec.org/internships.

SCEC offers two internship programs, each providing compensation of at least $6500:

The Undergraduate Studies in Earthquake Information Technology (UseIT) Program challenges teams of undergraduates of diverse backgrounds with real-world earthquake issues that require collaborative, interdisciplinary applications of earth science and information technology (including high performance computing).

The SCEC Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Program pairs undergraduates with SCEC scientists at that researcher's institution or field site. Projects for SURE interns span the spectrum of earthquake science.

Applications received by the February 16 priority deadline will be considered in the first round of internship offers.

Send any questions to internships@scec.org.

Want to send an announcement to the SCEC community?
SCEC community announcement requests should be sent to scecinfo@usc.edu (no attachments) with the following requirements, in order to best standardize announcements and provide maximum security for recipients. These requirements also ensure that various email applications and any applied filters reach the recipient as the announcement was intended.
1) Use this style guide :
• All text must be in Helvetica, 12 pt.
• Bold, italics, and underline formatting is permitted.
• Consider the length of web links; use bit.ly or tinyurl.com to shorten them as needed.
• NO PDFs, Word Docs, images, or other attachments - all content must be in the email request itself.
2) Include a subject line.

3) Remember, send your request to scecinfo@usc.edu.

We strive to send announcements as soon as possible. In general, expect a 2-3 business day turn-around. We may also combine announcements with others, delay sending certain announcements due to current events, and even reject requests if they do not fit the needs of the SCEC community.
